Your Host & The Team

“I will never forget the first time I came to Kep: I loved it immediately. Far from the busy seaside resorts in Southeast Asia, Kep offers an impressive contrast; tree-covered hills, sweet-scented flowers, a white sand beach, quiet people, and sunsets ablaze with shimmering colours. Guests can expect a unique Cambodian French hospitality experience amid a charming atmosphere replete with wide panoramic views of the Gulf of Thailand. This little corner of paradise awaits you to seduce you.”

“Tucked away in a secluded valley that leads down to the Gulf of Siam near Kep’s famed crab market, this exclusive retreat comprises two buildings totalling four guestrooms.”

Kim, the discoverer.
